As a woman traveling alone, the entire staff made me feel like this was my home away from home. I spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica, one of which was at Iguana Lodge. It was by far the highlight of my time there.

“Today is the best of times and the worst of times…We had an awesome time here. The worst is today, we have to leave. This place returns one to where the heart and soul should be, we just lose our way. The taste of the air, the sensual smell of the earth, the caress of the rain, all so rejuvenating.”  Jan and Dave Allen – San Diego, California – Iguana Lodge Guest Book
